33 minutes after Christmas

For too many women, Cesarean Section leaves behind an aftermath of self-doubt, confusion and pain. The internal messages of "I can't do this" or "My body doesn't work" linger long after the scar has begun to fade. It is this internal dialog that diminishes a woman's ability to reach her truest level of self-confidence. And this same dialog that makes VBAC so triumphant-- the overcoming of self and doubt and external messages.
Margarita and Kareem welcomed Toshiro, 33 minutes after Christmas, 2008-- a home vaginal birth after a previous cesarean. Margarita, reclaim your power and congratulations!
